You lose a lot of edge.

I guess they think the people who play the slower ones might not be as good at turbo formats as the ones who play the turbo formats, plus the added tilt factor sometimes.
If it was cash game I'd agree. Obviously also agree if you still like your edge in turbo against them (plus get to play more tables as you suggest).
ETA - I also think some bumhunter types just do it when they happen to play a good player on accident. They figure even a better player doesn't have much edge in a super-turbo.
